comment How to know when I should use katakana form words referring to animals, lesser creatures, or other organisms?
OK so maybe 蜘蛛 is a bad example of something more obscure. I'll snipe Zhen Lin's...

There are indeed many non-joyo kanji that many people can read, and there are many situations where it may be fine to use them. As a rule, though, I think basing it off the list is ok. Anything beyond that I think would be going on intuition, and if such intuition is not developed I can't think of any other way to judge except to search for frequency.

comment Meaning of お願い出します
I can understand why one might want to think that お願い出します could be right as 出す is often used as a suffix like that, but it's just not used that way with お願い. お願い致します is a VERY common expression and I would say with virtually 100% certainty that it's the right interpretation your case.

comment Which verb for “get off” / “leave” the Shuto Expressway?
@hippietrail ah sorry, that wasn't immediately clear to me. I'm not familiar with that regional jargon. I'm pretty sure you can still use it in the same way, though... △△を降りて◯◯に乗る? Or Or ~を出て高速に乗る?首都高から~に乗る・入る?

comment What is the difference between と, たら and 時【とき】?
I don't think the intent of that comment was to speak down on the concept of long answers. I agree that short and simple answers are probably more helpful to people at lower levels of learning even if they gloss over some finer details.

@dainichi With a little polish that comment seems like it'd be a more than suitable answer...
